Funding Your Degree

Scholarships and Fellowships

In addition to those listed below, there are numerous other scholarships and fellowships available for highly qualified graduate students. Visit The Graduate School's website for more information.

Assistantships

Graduate student, teaching and research assistantships are offered each year in a competitive process to a select number of qualified full-time students. Students assist with school or university administration, teach or undertake research with faculty members. Although responsibilities vary by assignment, assistants generally work 20 hours per week. Graduate and teaching assistants receive a stipend plus a tuition scholarship.
